Construction works would commence on the much awaited 147 kilometres Fulfulso-Damongo road on April 15.

Vice President John Dramani Mahama announced this at a durbar of the chiefs and people of the Gonja Traditional Area as part of activities to climax the 36th Annual Congress of the Gonjaland Youth Association (GLYA) in Damongo on Saturday.

In a speech read on his behalf he explained that the delay in the construction of the road to be asphalted was occasioned because aspects of the facility needed to re-assessed and re-evaluated to ensure that everything was in place for work to take off smoothly.

He said government had secured a grant of $166 million from the African Development Bank for the contract, which has been awarded to two Chinese construction firms, namely; China International Waters and Electrical Corporation and China Harbour and Engineering Corporation.

Vice President Mahama said China International Waters and Electrical Corporation would undertake the 80- kilometre stretch of the road from Fulfulso to Larabanga, while China Harbour and Engineering Corporation would also be responsible for the construction of the 67 kilometres stretch from Larabanga to Sawla.

Alhaji Iddrissu Haruna, Minister of Communications and Member of Parliament for Tamale South, who touched on the on-going biometric registration, observed that many of the registration centres in Tamale had faulty machines.

He therefore called on the Electoral Commission to replace them to enable all eligible voters to be captured in order to exercise their franchise.
